A lot of long term bang for the short term buck
Road debris took out the A/C condenser.
Lower steering universal joint was binding.
Heated seats ceased to operate at 150,000 miles. No big deal.
Was built 19 years ago this month, and just starting to show some rust. I am in New England. This is amazing.
Amazingly sound car. I am still running on original springs and struts, and they are fine. Recent test shows factory compression at over 300,000 miles. This has been the best vehicle I am ever likely to own. In ten years, I have never had a break down, and safety-wise, its like driving a 130+ MPH bank vault. Still handles tighter than anything new and domestic short of a Vette.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
